Location: The Heritage Foundation's Lehrman Auditorium 

With today's military fighting on so many fronts it is essential to understand how effective leadership of a commander's staff can mean the difference between victory and failure.  History has often overlooked the role of military chiefs of staff, often lost in the shadow of the great military commanders.  In the Chief of Staff: The Principal Officers behind History's Great Commanders series, the authors examine the role and historical significance of the military chiefs of staff from the Napoleonic wars to Vietnam.  Join us as a panel of contributing authors discusses the importance of military staff in winning today's war.
